In 2003, FOREX was granted a banking license and thus also ran banking operations until 2022 when the bank was wound up in favor of investing in strengthening FOREX's position as the Nordic market leader in travel currency. FOREX also offers other services and products related to travel and is available in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. We currently have 80 stores in the Nordic region.
